COVID-19 + Your Business = SteraMist? Here’s Why!

Earth wearing a mask

The Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic has been going on for what seems like forever. We have been through many ups and downs and times of uncertainty. Many people are still without a job or are barely working part-time hours.

Businesses have been forced to change their hours of operation, or close down completely. New regulations seem to pop up all the time, just when we think we finally have it all down. 

Rock Environmental has been on the battlefield right from the beginning, fighting the Coronavirus. As soon as cases started to arrive in the U.S., we immediately sought after the highest-rated, most recommended cleaning solution available on the market.

That is when we started using SteraMist to best help our community. The first in Rochester certified to use the products, we went straight to work. Keep reading to learn more about SteraMist and why it will help your business in the fight against COVID-19.

Fighting COVID-19 and the Flu


Every year, we fight some strain of the flu and other various illnesses, ranging from the stomach bug (rotavirus, norovirus, adenovirus), to strep throat (streptococcus). Viruses spread through open environments via droplets from a sneeze, cough, or simply talking.

When the droplets land on surfaces, anyone that touches them may become infected with the virus if the person was sick. Every year we face these issues, so why is it different now?

Now, in addition to these regular viruses, Coronavirus is being added to the mix. Another contagious virus that spreads quickly from person to person. At the beginning of 2020, a global pandemic was issued. Masks have been a part of our daily public lives since then.

We all went back to basic hygiene (wash/sanitize your hands, sneeze into your elbow, stay 6 feet apart) to help reduce the spread of not just the Coronavirus, but also these other viruses as well. Recent months have allowed for the distribution of vaccines for not just the flu (like every other year), but also the Coronavirus.

Different vaccines have become available in most cities and are being distributed diligently. The CDC offers up information related to the different types of vaccines available and how they work.



SteraMist is a cleaning solution that creates a mist or fog. The ultra-fine mist is produced by ionized Hydrogen Peroxide (iHP) using the patented process of Binary Ionization Technology (BIT). The iHP contains one of nature's most powerful oxidizing agents, hydroxyl radicals (•OH).

During the iHP process, fungal spores and bacteria are killed. Cells of viruses are inactivated by destroying their proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. This disrupts the cell and allows for quick decontamination. Basically, SteraMist kills on contact.

With SteraMist being an ultra-fine mist, it can be used on virtually any surface in any type of space. The EPA and the FDA have designated it safe and effective for hospital use as well as in the food industry.

Using the SteraMist environment system, an entire room can be completely cleaned and disinfected in 45 minutes or less. If the space is larger, more than one system can be used at the same time. 

The fine mist is sprayed on all surfaces and kills any live fungal spores, bacteria, or viral cells. There is no need to wipe anything down after the solution has been applied, and no residue is left behind.

SteraMist makes the cleaning and decontaminating process easier with no-touch disinfection. The SteraMist solution is safe for electronics, wood, fabric, and metal, making it one of the most versatile cleaners available. 

While other methods are being used for commercial coronavirus cleaning for businesses, SteraMist has one of the highest efficacy against various viruses. SteraMist is a 6-log kill, meaning it will kill 99.9999% of surface germs.

Other methods have been found to only be a 4-log disinfectant. With a quick application of the ready to use solution, entire facilities can be cleaned in no time.

Effects of COVID-19 in Rochester


Rochester, part of the Finger Lakes Region of NY, has been hit hard with restrictions and regulations related to Coronavirus cleaning for businesses. So much so that many small businesses have been forced to close their doors, for good.

When the global pandemic was first issued, everything was closed except for essential services (hospitals, grocery stores, emergency services). Those who worked in those fields have been deemed our local heroes for being an essential worker.

But sadly, those who worked in restaurants, salons, movie theaters, and gyms have not been so lucky. 

Rochester area residents, over 50,000 actually have been without employment. Some have managed to go back to part-time hours, but that is due to the restrictions in place for many businesses.

We have limits on how many can work at a time, as well as how many people can be inside of the facility at a time. Not to mention that everyone must wear a mask when in public. For many small businesses, it was a financial burden they were unable to come back from and were forced to close their doors.

With Coronavirus still lingering in the area, the concerns of spreading the virus are still there. Open businesses must have an effective cleaning system in place that meets state requirements to remain open.

How Will SteraMist Help Your Business?

Rock Environmental in Rochester, NY is all too familiar with the state laws and regulations in place regarding cleaning and disinfecting. SteraMist is a product that has been approved by the EPA and FDA for use in hospital settings as well as most other facilities.

SteraMist will help your business in a variety of ways. For example, the time that it takes to clean every high-touch surface (doorknobs, railings, cash registers, tables, chairs) can be lengthy. SteraMist can get every surface in a matter of minutes, and get this, without any contact! 

That’s right, there is no need to wash anything down (unless it's filthy) or move things around. The powerful plasma arc creates such a fine mist that it will get onto every surface, kill the bacteria, and doesn't need to be wiped up after. This will cut down on time and costs.

All the certified commercial Coronavirus Cleaning professionals at Rock Environmental have been HAZWOPER trained, and wear all the proper PPE during all cleaning and disinfection.

Rock Environmental stays on top of all the changes to make it easier for fellow business owners in the community. Additionally, because it is such a quick process, there is little to no downtime in the day to day operations of your business.


    SteraMist is a ready-to-go solution that does not include any toxic chemicals or needs to be mixed or diluted in any way. The SteraMist Environment System is fully transportable, and we bring everything we need to fully cleanse and disinfect your facility.

    After the mist settles and dries, no residue is left which is why it doesn’t need to be wiped afterward, making it even quicker to get things back up and running.

    The SteraMist handheld systems allow for easier cleaning in other spaces as well. All it takes is 5 seconds of spray time and just a few more minutes to settle and dry. Why would you choose any other product?
